Shower Fixture Replacement

If your shower faucet handle breaks, you may think its a quick fix, but before you run out to the hardware store to get a shiny new faucet here are some things you need to know:

  • Not all shower faucets are the same – Unless you replace your shower handle with the same or very similar handle you may find yourself with a larger project on your hands.
  • Shower valves may be different – If you remove the faucet fixture you’ll see a shower valve behind the wall that controls the faucet. If you purchase a new handle that is different from what you previously had the new handle may not align with the old shower valve.
  • Shower valve replacement requires a qualified plumber – If you want to update your old, broken shower faucet with a shiny new updated model, TLC is here to help. As we mentioned above a shower faucet replacement can be more complicated than just replacing the handle. A shower valve replacement can require several hours to replace.
